Where I See Myself In 10 Years

Where do you see yourself in 10 years, in 20 years, or in 30 years? This is the topic of my essay. As a lady in her twenties, I have dwell on this question a few times in my life. There is a saying that time flies so fast without us noticing it. A few blinks and a few years is gone. It is not completely wrong when people said a year is easily passed just like that. However, 10 years is not a short period of time. In 10 years, many adjustment can occur and one can develop into a different person, be it good or bad. In 10 years, I would be thirty-six years old. At the age of thirty-six, I can see that I am a happy, successful woman who had accomplished more than half of my bucket list. If not yet accomplished, I will be working towards accomplishing those goals to fulfill my life. I have always love being active to keep myself fit. Not only for the sake of being healthy, but also to make myself able to do various things without much difficulties.

Therefore in sports area, I expect to have learn how to swim, mastered some skills in skateboarding, winning a few matches in badminton when I compete with my friends and conquer Bukit Sarang Helang in less than an hour. In addition to that, I enjoy watching Korean variety shows and Japanese animation. Being an independent person, I started to learn Korean language by myself without attending any classes. This is so that I don’t have to depend on people to sub those shows with English subtitle. As of today, I can fully read and write but only limited understanding in Korean. Thus, I believe that I am able to communicate fluently in both Korean and Japanese language within the next three years. In terms of life skills, before I turned 30, I have already get a good grip on how to manage budget. Being the third out of five siblings, although I am not the oldest, I am also capable of sharing responsibilities with my older siblings and providing good environment and conditions for my family.

Other than that, I am capable of understanding car problems and changing car tires without any much help too. As for my career, being an enthusiastic person I am, once I have start working, my number one priority is to acquire the skills needed for my job position while enjoying my task at the same time. As per brief discussion on the first interview, as a lab technician, my main duty is to check whether the liquid purity is as what stated on the paper when it arrived. Then proceed to process the liquid into the required concentration and pressure. Besides that, I have to listen and communicate effectively with engineers to ensure everything goes well. However, I am not going to settle down just that. I am also hopeful that I’ll be able to grow within this position to take on more and be a part of new and exciting projects in the community. By that, if there is an opportunity for advancement and I have the skills and experience needed, I will give my best in taking up a new challenge.

Ten years down the road, I am able to bring in new ideas and initiatives into the company, share my skills and guide new recruits in contributing a better future for the company’s goal in expanding its’ product and services. Thus, helping the company in growing their revenues and client base. So where do I see myself in 10 years? This essay shows that in ten years from now, I want to have made an impact on this company in a significant and positive way.

Where I See Myself In 5 Years

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Essay is the best way to answer this question, I guess. My goals for the next 5 years consist of attending BVCTC for 2 years, moving to Maine after establishing a job and getting a career in Criminal Justice while attending Purdue University Online College for Forensic Technology and Psychology. That alone should take 2-4 years depending on how fast I can accomplish my work. College is the basis of my future achievements because I want to make as much money as I can so as not to give my children a future involving unaccomplished parents who wonder how they are going to feed their children. I excel in puzzles and adore the complex thinking that comes with finding out who the criminal is, what he used, his/her personality, and possibly the way he/she thinks. I find it fascinating to look inside the human mind (even if it involves the dissection of such) and figuring out how it works. Forensic Psychology has to do with figuring out the way a criminal/killer/suspect thinks, acts, walks, talks, and simply their general daily life. Once you get the personality and mental status down, the rest becomes as Sherlock Holmes said ‘elementary’.

What got me interested in the career path I’m taking were the television shows I watched as a kid, such as Bones, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Law and Order SVU. I enjoyed watching the progression of the theses from the investigators. For example, Doctor Spencer Reed of Criminal Minds During Season 1, Episode 4 ‘Plain Sight’ once said that profiling a suspect is ‘like finding a needle in a pile of needles. A needle would stand out in a haystack.’ when referring to the difficulties of searching for suspects that can hide in plain sight similar to Ted Bundy. I also relate to Dr. Reed as he is very confident in statistics as am I, as seen in Season 4, Episode 9 ’52 Pickup’. In Bones, season 1 episode ‘the woman in the tunnel’ Doctor Temperance Brennan states that ‘Every society has its bottom-dwellers, and every society fears its bottom-dwellers because they are a symbol of what happens in that society if you fail’ hence why we fear crime and consequences so much. we fear becoming those bottom dwellers that we so eagerly try to get rid of or replace with what we consider as normal human beings, but in a way, the theorist in myself believes that we are all bottom dwellers. we are all capable of crime and some have even thought about it, but they never planned it out or even executed what was coming to mind. this is also including thoughts of self-destruction or Appel Du Vide which translates to ‘the call of the void’. This makes me aspire to want a future involving more discovery about criminal profiling and while this may not happen within 5 years as I’m sure it will take longer for the education I seek, I will stop at nothing to achieve my dream career. my perseverance will prevail above all else to build the future I want for myself and pave the way for the future of my next generation.

So where do I see myself in 5 years? To conclude the essay, my next 5 years consist of nothing, but school. I am planning to move out of state after gaining my Associates at BVCTC and continuing my online education in another state. I am inspired by many television influences and I acknowledge that my career won’t be exactly like those shows. However, I will prevail in achieving the job that I’ve wanted from a young age. As Tom Bradley once said ‘The only thing that will stop you from achieving your dreams is you.’ and I won’t stop myself.
